Karim Adeyemi’s career is off to a fast start, the 19-year-old German forward has made a name for himself at Red Bull Salzburg since arriving in 2018. Adeyemi has 14 goals in only 45 games for the Austrian club and has won two Austrian Bundesligas and two Austrian Cups.
That only tells half the story as Adeyemi has started this season on fire scoring six goals in six matches. The former Bayern Munich youth player has moved up the ranks very quickly considering he has already scored 1 goal in his first cap with the German national team.
Now a report out of Germany, Bild, suggests that the young German has caught the eye of three of the major clubs in Europe: Barcelona, Liverpool, and Bayern Munich. Here are the chances of Karim Adeyemi joining those sides.
At this point it’s wishful thinking that Barcelona will be even able to afford Karim Adeyemi. Rated at £17 million look for that transfer fee to go up if he has a successful Champions League campaign and continues to score for Germany. Barcelona is in cost cutting mode and it’s doubtful that they could enter a “transfer war” for the young German.
Liverpool could make a lot of sense, Jurgen Klopp is keen on bringing in a new striker and as one of the best German coaches out there and in one the best leagues in the World it might be a good sell for Adeyemi to join Liverpool. Competition might be hard, but the young man has the talent to do very well at Anfield.
Adeyemi already spent part of his formative years at Bayern Munich’s youth academies, a native son of Munich, Adeyemi may look kindly on a return home and playing for one of the best teams in the world. If the price is right, look for him to suit up in the Bayern Munich red.
